Veronica Mars Comic-Con 2013 Movie SpoilersAs hardcore fans know, the plot of the upcoming Veronica Mars film finds Veronica “getting pulled back into this life that she thought she had left behind,” series creator and movie mastermind Rob Thomas told fans during Friday’s Comic-Con panel, which also featured a sneak peek at the flick.

But what even the toastiest Marshmallow may not know is that it’s ex-boyfriend Logan who says, “I need your help, Veronica.” Her reply: “I don’t really do that anymore.” Yeah… that’s not going to fly.

LoVe ‘shippers will be happy to know the two share plenty of screen time in the sleek, stylish-looking preview, which showed them riding in Logan’s car and talking in someone’s (Veronica’s?) digs. But the scene that will make fans squeal the most? The guys of the film – Logan, Dick, Piz, Weevil, etc. – wearing soaking wet dress shirts and marching forward.

Other highlights from the sizzle reel included: Madison tauntingly asking Veronica if she’s going to taze her, until V finally punches her enemy and quips, “Original enough for you?”; True Lies star Jamie Lee Curtis (!) reeling off the P.I.’s accomplishments; and a Neptune High reunion fight that prompts Piz to remark that the school “actually does sit on a hellmouth.” (Way to earn some points with that Buffy reference!) Oh, and Weevil’s married!

The panel discussion — in which Thomas was joined by stars Kristen Bell, Enrico Colantoni, Ryan Hansen, Jason Dohring, Tina Majorino, Chris Lowell, Percy Daggs III and Francis Capra — revealed a (Neptune) pirate’s plunder of goodies. Among them:

HAPPY REUNION | The film “has a Godfather III theme to it,” shared Thomas, who wasn’t worried about balancing fan expectations with his own desires. “I think the story that I wanted to tell is the one I think fans wanted to see. I wanted to get the old gang back together.”

SHIPPER WARS | Lowell sported a “Team Logan” shirt, while Dohring’s said “Team Piz.” “I wore this shirt today so I wouldn’t be shot when I stepped on stage,” joked Lowell. The actor added that when Thomas announced Piz’s inclusion in the film, Lowell’s reaction was, “The death threats have almost stopped. Why now?!”

TOGETHER AGAIN | Bell’s first scene on the movie shoot was with Dohring. “We just kept staring and going, ‘Are we really here right now?’” recalled the actress. Speaking of the couple, when a fan asked who taught Dohring how to smolder, Bell replied, “The heavens?” The actor also got props from co-star Hansen, who was a novice when the show first started. “Jason was like my acting coach,” Hansen said of those early days.

NO FAMILY AFFAIR | Alyson Hannigan’s Trina isn’t in the movie, and series characters like Duncan and Beaver won’t get mentions, either. “A lot of thought went into that,” explained Thomas. “I wanted to write the movie in such a way that for the fans, there’s plenty of Easter eggs… that you will appreciate because you watched the TV series.” But the EP noted that people who are new to the project will be able to understand it, too. “I wanted the movie to be the start of something.” Dohring also teased that there are “lots of other surprises that people don’t know about that will be cool.”

CHEMISTRY ALERT | Thomas reminisced that Veronica and Logan’s first kiss in Season 1 got him choked up. “I rewound it and rewound and rewound,” he said. “Then my wife entered, and I had tears in my eyes. It was an embarrassing moment that I was watching my own work, a kiss. It just felt so earned to me.”

TO THE BIG SCREEN AGAIN | Thomas said he hopes the flick — which will likely be released in early 2014 — is only the first of many films. “I want to be a Bond franchise. I hope to make a ton of money on this movie and we get to do it [through] the normal channels. If we’re a huge hit — I don’t think Kickstarter is meant to fund huge hits.”

  • Veronica Mars deserves all the recognition it can get. It’s a great fresh show, they don’t make them like that anymore and to be able to see it on the big screen is incredible.

  • really, no Duncan? ouch for Teddy Dunn.

    Comment by Will – July 19, 2013 06:45 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I am a little bummed that there won’t be a Duncan reference. Duncan was such a HUGE part of the show. It isn’t a little Easter egg to make some sort of reference to him.

  • I’ve never seen Veronica Mars but I seriously can’t wait to see this movie.

  • I really wanted a mention of Duncan. I want to know what he is doing now. Maybe in the books?

  • “But the scene that will make fans squeal the most? The guys of the film – Logan, Dick, Piz, Weevil, etc. – wearing soaking wet dress shirts and marching forward.”

    Is this a reference I’m missing, or did the author mean “female fans”? I know CW thought that everyone who watched was a teen girl, but as a guy, I watched it, because it was a smartly written, witty show.

  • I was never a huge Duncan fan, but he was okay, and as others have said, he was quite a big part of the show, I would also have thought that they would at least mention him in some way.
    Just like a little “anybody know how little Lily and Duncan are doing?” or something.
    but okay, I can understand the reason behind not doing it.
